A 19-foot python has been seized in Canada’s Yarmouth County on Tuesday.

In the latest snake seizure in Canada, Nova Scotia conservation officials obtained the huge python, which weighed 68 kilograms or 149 pounds, reported CBC

The seizure comes about two and a half weeks after authorities killed a python in New Brunswick that escaped from its cage and killed two young boys.

Last week, officials seized 40 pythons from a motel room in Ontario.
